Blazers run away to win, end Warriors' streak

Blazers run away to win, end Warriors' streak

Damian Lillard scored 29 points and the Portland Trail Blazers used a late 16-0 run to blow away the visiting Golden State Warriors 129-107 on Wednesday night. Jake Layman added 17 points off the bench as eight players scored in double figures for the Trail Blazers, who snapped Golden State's five-game win streak.

Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry each scored 32 points for the Warriors, who had won 15 of their previous 16 contests. Golden State went without center DeMarcus Cousins and key reserves Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston to give them some rest.

Lillard scored 15 points and CJ McCollum 10 as Portland carried a 64-61 edge into intermission. Durant had 20 points and Curry 14 for Golden State. The Blazers extended their advantage to 81-75, but the Warriors used an 18-7 run to go ahead 93-88. Portland responded with six straight points to take a 94-93 lead. Golden State led 95-94 heading into the final period.

Layman scored three straight baskets to push Portland in front 104-101 with 8:25 remaining. The Blazers scored the next six points -- two on baskets by Seth Curry -- to up the lead to 110-101 with six minutes to play. Jonas Jerebko's tip-in cut it to 110-103 before the bottom fell out for the Warriors with 3:54 to go. Draymond Green was called for a flagrant foul on Portland's Zach Collins. Warriors coach Steve Kerr slammed his clipboard to the court in protest and was given a technical foul. When he vehemently protested, he got another one and was ejected. Then Green picked up a technical.

When the smoke had cleared, the Blazers' lead was 126-103 with 1:45 to play. Portland jumped to a 15-11 lead, but the Warriors used a 16-8 run to go ahead 27-23. With Durant providing 16 points, Golden State took a 33-31 advantage into the second quarter.

The Blazers led 60-54 after a 3-pointer by McCollum and settled for a three-point advantage at the break. --Field Level Media
